2008 Audi R8
Audi RS8 - Before the Fire!

Audi's RS8 has been testing on the Nuerburgring, but today's spy pictures caught it en fuego - burned up after a testing mishap. See the pics over at the main site -- but you can watch it circle the test track and pray, without any luck, that it won't turn into a well-done Jimmy Dean sausage in the...Read More»

Driven: The Most Expensive Audi Ever!

We’ve driven, and loved all over, Audi’s new R8. So sleek and capable it is, we’re willing to overlook the fact that it’s been priced comparable to a two-bedroom house in Detroit. Audi says the R8 will run you $109,000—$118,000 if you want it with an automatic. But you...Read More»

Celebrity Car Deathwatch: Griffin’s Enzo Crash

You’ve seen it, right? The horror of comedian Eddie Griffin nailing a jersey barrier with a one-of-four-hundred Ferrari Enzo? We could be physically sick. What’s worse, on some video we’ve seen, is how he refuses to break character when explaining to local news crews how he fucked...Read More»

Aston: Free at Last

Now let me get this straight. I’ve just flown 4000 miles to test drive the new Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster and it’s 36 degrees out there. Okay. Is there a problem? Call it one of the little hazards of the profession. But sometimes, we automotive journalists have to make sacrifices...Read More»

Aston DBX: Better than SLR, Veyron?

Aston Martin isn’t exactly in mourning over its recent shove-off from the Ford empire. After its ownership changed hands, the British company immediately greenlighted its new Rapide sedan and DBS sportscar—and now, it’s plotting a DBX competitor for the Benz SLR and Bugatti...Read More»

Callaway’s Latest Spin on the ‘Vette: C16 Cabrio

“Callaway is bringin’ it!” someone just told me over my shoulder, staring at this pic of the new Callaway C16 Cabrio. What they’re bringing, we couldn’t clarify despite repeated attempts to talk through their Taco Bell 64-ouncer. But we can confirm Callaway is bringing...Read More»

Lambo Plans: More Versions, No Ute

Lamborghini’s a niche brand, but in 2006 its sales dwarfed some other brands that come to mind (Aston Martin, cough). Lambo sold more than 2000 cars in ’06 and plans on more in 2007 thanks to the Superleggera, the lightweight Gallardo we drove in Phoenix today. We’ll be back this...Read More»

Bugatti’s Bscher Out: Veyron Plus None

The Wall Street Journal confirms that Bugatti’s head Thomas Bscher has resigned. Bscher had been head of the Volkswagen Group’s most exclusive brand. His departure comes on the heels of that of Wolfgang Bernhard, once thought to be in line to be chairman of Germany’s largest...Read More»

Aston Sale Imminent – But Why?

The band blares a nameless pop tune as I lean in a little closer to one of long-time sources at Ford Motor Co. “Soon,” he shouts, hoping to be heard over the din at a Geneva preview of the automaker’s new Mondeo, “It should be done soon.” By “it,” I must explain, he...Read More»

TVR Out of Russian Hands, Again

The convoluted saga of Britain’s TVR sportscars has taken another U-turn, as Russian owner Nikolai Smolenski says he will sell off the company to a pair of Florida-based investors. Last week, it was revealed that Smolenski, who had lost control of TVR at the end of last year, sending the...Read More»

As if the 911 Turbo Needed More Power...

Geneva's annual motor show draws design concepts and (mostly) European production cars to the city's crowded, formerly smokey Palexpo hall. This time around, tuner TechArt is bringing an outrageous 630-horsepower version of the 911 Turbo. Dubbed the GTStreet, the modified Porsche will rush to 62...Read More»

Gran Turismo - Not the Cardigans, but Maserati

This is all a bit too esoteric for early morning, but hey - remember the Cardigans? That catchy Lovefool song? The follow-up was a darker, less catchy, heavily art-directed brown disc called Gran Turismo that sported a couple of singles we like, including Erase/Rewind. You should catch it. VH1 even...Read More»

Audi R8 Going Ragtop?

Hey, it’s not us – really – but the talk of possible future Audi R8 versions has gone from hazy, martini-soaked confessions to printed rumor. Dutch magazine AutoVisie confirms some talk we’ve heard about a Spyder version of the R8 due next year, along with uprated versions...Read More»

Ferrari Daytona
BRP Can-Am Spyder: Breakthrough or Another Segway?

At first glance, the BRP Can-Am Spyder looks like another motorcycle, but get a bit closer and you’ll notice its unusual, Y-shaped layout, with two wheels up front and one in the rear. That’s mean to enhance stability — and lure in nervous Baby Boomers who’d love to relive...Read More»
